Dara Caponigro and her staff hit it out of the park with the April issue of Veranda! This issue is a top-notch stand out, replete from cover-to-cover with beautifully executed and inspirational design. Above is the foyer of a Florida home designed by James Michael Howard in collaboration with homeowners Robert and Sallie Ann Hart. I just received my issue last night and have already spent an inordinate amount of time drinking in every detail of these faux bois walls and limed wood pieces. (photography by Miguel Flores-Vianna)
DC designer Frank Babb Randolph transformed a Georgetown home into a refined, light-filled space that showcases the paintings of owner Robert Rea, whose work is carried by Susan Calloway Fine Art. Perfectly placed splashes of color throughout the home create a beautiful balance of energy and calm. I love the styling of this table - gorgeous!

Designer Roberto Bergero's Parisian pied-a-terre masterfully showcases color blocking that is classic, balanced and vibrant all at the same time. Every image in this spread is stunning. (Photography by Rene Stoeltie)
Just one more - a classic library designed by Peggy Stone with formal furnishings that still create a lived in, comfortable feel. Notice the subtle and interesting detail in the drapes - she trimmed them in a slightly different shade of gray. (Photography by Peter Vitale)

I haven't been this excited about an issue of a shelter magazine in a long time.
Thank you, thank you Veranda!
